. they did not like the neo-conservative overreach of the administration so he wound up voting for barack obama in 2008. john mccain was aggressively pro war in middle east, and appeared to be headed in the wrong direction by colin powell. the same neo-conservatives have gone into the romney camp. so colin powell is behind barack obama again. >> he the president got us out of war, and did not get us in any new wars i think we ought to keep on the track that we are on with respect to governor romney i have the utmost respect for him. but as i listen to what his proposals are, especially with respect to dealing with our most significant issue with the economy, it's cut taxes and compensate for that with other things. but that compensation does not cover all of the cuts intended or the new expenses associated with defense. >> cenk: so interesting intelligent comments about mitt romney foreign policy and domestic policy. but john sunuunu has a different idea why colin powell is backing barack obama. >> frankly when you take a look at colin powell. you have to wonder if that is based on issues
presidential and it's nicely placed. again to give president to president obama, he said that he would focus on fema. here's what president obama said during the debates back in 2007. >> obama: we've got to make sure we have an effective emergency response, something this administration failed to do when we had a hurricane in new orleans. i think we have to review how we operate in the event of not only a natural disaster, but also a terrorist attack. >> cenk: it turns out he was right and preparedness is very, very important, in fact getting high praise from this gentlemen all week long. >> he has worked very, voluntary closely with me and i can't thank the president enough for working with our state and the people of our state. >> cenk: that has made rush limbaugh very, very angry. >> chris christie is the only republican not just praising obama. i mean, it's -- it's -- let me just put it this way. is it wrong for one man to love another man? but that man-love out there it's isolated to the state of new jersey. >> cenk: man i love that, because when chris christie is being a tough guy and
